Your osteopathic clinician is fully qualified to understand you and your health problem. Osteopaths do not claim to cure the body but facilitate the expression of health by gently balancing tensions and thus helping the body return to a more harmonious state that can function optimally. Following treatment the body will make its own intelligent adjustments to return to health. This makes osteopathic treatment inherently safe and beneficial to most, if not all, conditions.

The osteopathic governing body, the General Osteopathic Council, strictly regulates its professionals to ensure high educational standards and safe practice. Furthermore, we work together with all other health professionals to achieve the highest standards of patient safety and treatment, therefore referral for further examination or treatment may be suggested. 

During the phase of adjustment minimal, temporary side effects may be experienced but your osteopath will advise you as to what these may be in advance.
